How to Enhance Your Pup’s Health at Mealtime
Feeding a puppy can sure be a challenge! No matter how much you research healthy options and try out different flavors, feeding the same puppy food each and every day is sure to get boring. Luckily there are tons of options to help enhance the flavor of your dog’s meal without compromising the nutritional value and quality—in fact, many of the options will actually add nutrition to his diet. If the extra flavor isn’t incentive enough, often meal enhancements can help entice finicky pups to actually enjoy their meals and take full advantage of the available nutritional benefits. Here are four of our favorite add-in options that are sure to make your pup’s meal as tasty as he deserves.
1. Toppers. As the name suggests, toppers are products that you can pour on top of your dog’s meals. The simplicity is great for feeding a puppy, but what your dog gets out of toppers is even better. Products like The Honest Kitchen Proper Toppers Grain-Free Turkey Recipe, for example, contain highly palatable superfood clusters that can be tossed on last-second to your dog’s breakfast, lunch and dinner. They offer a boost of flavor, as well as additional vitamins and minerals that can be found in the whole-food ingredients like cage-free turkey, apples, pumpkin, blueberries and chard.
2. Supplements. Nutritional supplements are just as easy for feeding puppies, and they can help your dog reach and maintain his peak health potential. For example, supplements like The Honest Kitchen Perfect Form Herbal Gastrointestinal Supplement help support the normal, healthy functioning of your dog’s digestive system by combating gas, facilitating regularity, firming up loose stools and soothing and protecting the gastrointestinal tract.
3. Probiotics. In addition to using supplements to support your dog’s digestive system, you can use probiotics for gut support for your dog. The Honest Kitchen Pro Bloom Instant Goat’s Milk for Dogs & Cats is a special formulation for feeding a puppy that uses natural goat’s milk plus probiotics and digestive enzymes to help nourish your pup. This probiotic supplement can be served alone, or you can pour it over kibble (after rehydrating) to add moisture, or mix it with wet food.
4. Flavored bone broth. For a warm treat, bone broth adds both natural flavor and nutritional value to your pup’s dining experience. The Honest Kitchen Bone Broth with Turmeric is made from a mix of human-grade, dehydrated ingredients, including parsley and pumpkin, and turmeric extract that acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory. This broth can be used as a solitary treat, or can be poured over kibble for added moisture—just add a bit of warm water to the powder as directed.
With so many tasty and fun options, there’s no reason your pet’s dinnertime has to be dull. Try these delicious meal enhancers today to make feeding a puppy easier and more rewarding!
